Welcome

Welcome to icy Swan Creations
Quilting in the frozen north!

Fairbanks, Alaska’s cold, dark, 9-month-long winter is the ideal time to piece quilt tops until they are stacked as high as the snow outside your window. Let me help you finish up your winter’s work. Contact me to get started.

  • Carol,
    WOW!!!!!!! Can't tell you how terrific I think that quilt looks. Saved by Carol the quilt expert. I'm sorry I gave you such a problem but you worked your magic and made it look much better than a "second" quilt.

    I REALLY LOVE IT..... THANKS
    I saw 2 quilts you did for LA –they were awesome!

  • Hi Carol
    I received my quilts today and I am over the top!!! They are absolutely fabulous! I took them to my quilt group meeting tonight and they were extremely impressed as well. Thank you so much for taking so much care and effort with my quilts. . . .Thanks again, it’s a treat to find someone who takes pride and pleasure in their work.
    Forgot to say that your freehand work is gorgeous! If you think that kind of work would go with my quilts go for it!

  • Hi Carol,
    Thank you for coming and teaching for us! I think everyone had a great time, I know I did, and would have loved to stay till the end, but we did have a fun time in Fairbanks.
    So far, I haven't heard any negative comments, so I guess that's a good sign! I'll keep an ear out & see what people thought. I thought your classroom instruction and your written instructions were both good. I finished mine (the top) on Monday,

  • Thanks for doing such a beautiful job of “My Favorite Leaves” design on my throw for my daughter. She loved it!

    Thanks so much for quilting “Blue Splash” for me. It is absolutely beautiful! The quilting makes it look wavy and watery. Just how I pictured it!

    Thank you for the excellent quilting job you did on my quilt. It is absolutely beautiful! apologize, but want to also thank you for the extra effort you had put into it; i.e. buying more material for the backing and binding. I appreciate you not just throwing your hands up at me. Thank you for delivering the quilt—it looks great on our bed—this was our Christmas present to each other.
    - Lucy Hirsch

  • The quilt arrived yesterday, while I was shopping at Material Girls, so was able to pick out the binding fabric. Of course I got to show it off to the girls there, that was fun! It is beautiful, I am very, very happy with it and I will be able to get it finished in the next two days and off to my sister for Christmas. She lives in Washington, so it should make it just fine. thank you so much for getting it done in time. WOW!

  • Hi Carol,
    I love what you did on the quilts. Sorry it took me so long to even have a look at them----house full of people who don’t need to see this stuff!!! Madi will have such fun trying to figure out what’s actually written on her quilt, and the colors and flowers are wonderful. Good on ya. I apologize for the seams on the backings w/o the selvages trimmed off—Thanks for taking the time to make those right. Everything is nice and flat and I’m totally pleased. I’m glad to find you and will recommend your services. Have a lovely holiday and thanks again.

  • CAROL,
    I JUST PICKED UP THE QUILT & YOU DID AN AWSOME JOB. I AM SO PLEASED WITH ALL OF THE QUILTING... I KNEW THAT YOU WOULD DO A GREAT JOB. THE QUILT IN THE DITCH IS SO GOOD & I APPRECIATE YOU DOING THAT BECAUSE YOU HAVE TOLD ME HOW DIFFICULT IT IS. I LOVE THE FLAG WITH ALL THE HIDDEN MESSAGES. YOU MADE EACH BLOCK A SPECIAL QUILT. THE POLAR BEAR IS MY FAULT BECAUSE HE DOESN'T SHOW UP WELL. I AM GOING TO GO AROUND THE BEAR WITH A DARKER BLUE THREAD & SEE IF IT HELPS. THANKS AGAIN FOR MAKING THIS SPECIAL QUILT A VERY SPECIAL QUILT.

  • Hi Carol
    got the quilt from Jean today and it looks fantastic! I love the gold thread and the quilting pattern-my niece is going flip! Thank you so much for another job well done! I will be in touch with you in the New Year about the other ones I have. Take care

  • Hi Carol,
    I just wanted to thank you again for picking the perfect pattern for my quilt, I love it! Darlene said to tell you she loves it too.

    Thanks,
    - Lisa

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful quilting on my brother's quilt. He was absolutely overwhelmed by it and couldn't get over that it was quilted in "We choose Hope” Once I told him how to find it; he went crazy looking for the words. I can't thank you enough for getting it done so fast. That meant a lot to me as I wanted to get it to him quickly to try to put some sunshine into his struggles. He has posted the quilt as his picture on his caringbridges page Again, thank you for quilting his blanket. It meant the world to him. - Joan DeWitt

  • I was finally able to get it this afternoon. It is beautiful. You did a beautiful job. My mother in law is going to love it. Your recommendations were spot on. I look forward to many more collaborations. - Karen Day

  • HI CAROL,
    I LOVE THE BLANKET TOSS QUILT. I'M SO GLAD THAT THE OTHER BACKING DIDN'T WORK AS THIS ONE IS SOOOOO PERFECT. I LOVE THE QUILTING THAT YOU DID ON IT. YOU MADE A QUILT THAT I FELT WAS JUST SO-SO INTO ONE THAT I REALLY LIKE. I OPENED IT AT THE MATERIAL GIRLS & DIANN LOVED IT TOO.
    I've been meaning to send you some pictures, but time just got away from me. Sorry for the delay, but here they are! Fred was overwhelmed by the quilt, as were the party attendees. I suspect you will have some business out of this as well, as everyone was asking who did the amazing quilting. - De Anne

  • Hi There,
    I recently saw the photos of the quilt you quilted for AK Geological and Geophysical Survey. It was amazing!! I asked my sister Paula about who had done such a wonderful job, and she gave me your info. I would love to send you some quilt tops to finish, both very simple geometric patterns, so nowhere near as fancy as the work you did for the quilt I saw. I am not too keen on the work of the local person I used last, and would love to have your quality finishing if it were possible.
    Thank you and I am printing out your order form today! - Naomi

  • Carol,
    I gotta tell you girl if that is low end work i am totally satisfied. Couldn't be happier. This was my first time specialty quilting. It sure does make the quilt. I wanted (to make) at least 6, one for each grandchild. But now I may have to do 5 more and have specialty quilted. I think they will choose yours as it truly is beautiful. When one looks at a quilt you have finished it is a work or Art. It is not the quilt one looks at but the motifs and designs around and on it. Thank you very much. - Beth
